As bloggers, we get opportunities to try out new products and crafting supplies quite often. Well, I can truly say that this is one of the COOLEST crafting tools I’ve ever seen! We R Memory Keepers has created two brand-new versions of their famous punch boards. The 1-2-3 Punch Board makes envelopes, boxes, and bows (oh my!) in all different sizes. They also have a genius Banner Punch Board that makes custom banners quickly and easily!
This bundle includes all of this goodness:
- 1-2-3 Punch Board
- Banner Punch Board
- 12X12 paper pad – (cute double-sided cardstock!)
- packaging tape
- baker’s twine
- idea book
The idea book gives easy to follow instructions, but here is a little step-by-step to give you an idea. Basically, you punch and score along pre-measured lines, round corners (yup, there’s a corner rounder on the board!), fold together and glue! It’s so easy and really fun!
You can use the 1-2-3 Punch board to make a really fun and interactive Envelope Birthday Book for someone you love!
We made this one for a Grandma’s birthday coming up this month.
I created the base of the book by cutting 12×12 pieces of paper in half – making them 6×12. Fold those pages in half and glue back to back – accordion style. Then glue in various sizes of envelopes and fill with notes and photos. I love how interactive the book is with all the different envelopes to open!
At the end of the birthday book, I wanted to include a gift card (Yum!) One of my favorite things about this board is that you can make an envelope to fit any size card you have! So I just measured my gift card and used the measurements on the board to make the perfect-sized envelope. The idea book shows you how to make the cute envelope liners, too.
I love how easy it is to make birthday decor with the Banner Punch Board that is also included in the Party Pack! You can make 3 different styles of banners and the board even has it’s own mini hole punch to make hanging easy!
